Step 1: Approval for Demolition
The first port of call with a potential knockdown and rebuild project is to find out if your home can be knocked down. As a part of our service, we can find out if your home is eligible to be demolished and rebuilt.
In some parts of Sydney, homes (such as heritage homes) cannot be significantly altered(*3). In the case where your home cannot be demolished, we can help you to utilise and enhance the spaces in your home through high-quality renovations and extensions.
Step 2: Tests, Surveys and Consultations
Soil tests and surveys will also need to be completed. It is important to either organise these yourself as early in the process as possible or get your builder to include these in their quote. Another point to note is that depending on the results of the soil tests and surveys, your quote may need to be amended. The more information you can provide to your builder or allow them to obtain, the better. This is why we do thorough research before providing a final quote.
Soil tests are particularly important for rebuilds. This is because your soil may have been suitable for your current timber home but may need work to improve its ‘reactivity’ to cope with a much heavier modern home(*4).
Talk to your builder about a pre-construction agreement. In this agreement, your builder will organise all necessary surveys, tests, and consultations as well as a comprehensive project plan and quote. Our pre-construction agreements are incredibly thorough, are non-binding and obligation-free.
Step 3: Comprehensive Quote
With all the information required for your knockdown and rebuild project on hand, we can put together a detailed cost plan. Everything is included, from moving services and driveways to when you will need to let us know your final colour choices and finishes.
